26 July 2008: Outlets

Question: What do you call a black switch with a brass face plate on a beige wall?

Answer: Ugly.

Solution: Use white outlets on white walls and almond outlets on beige walls.

This photo shows all of the outlets, switches, and cover plates I replaced.  Although you can't tell from the photo, just about every item had a bit of paint on it.

 
Our house had eight non-grounded or two prong outlets.  Based on this article, I replaced them all with GFCI outlets and attached stickers indicating that the outlet is not grounded.  The outlets came in packs of three, but each pack had only two stickers in English saying the outlet is not grounded, so I had to use the French stickers on a few outlets.
